1. Bysouth, Don. "“And I suddenly thought”: ‘On-topic’ topic-markers as devices for reformulations in psychotherapeutic interactions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p241898_index.html>

Abstract: This paper provides an ethnomethodologically grounded account of how mental predicates and psychological terms feature in-and-as the doing of psychotherapeutic work. Drawing from an early unpublished formulation by Harvey Sacks concerning the manner in which speakers may come to ‘just have a thought’, and published findings detailing preference organisation with regard to storytelling (that the telling of a first story often invites the telling of a second story) and self-disclosure (that an initial self-disclosure can invite a second), the paper examines how utterances such as ‘I suddenly thought’ might feature in psychotherapeutic interactions. Drawing from a corpus of audio recordings of psychotherapy sessions, I demonstrate that the work of such utterances is anything but to referentially index some kinds of hidden cognitive, psychological mental states or processes. Rather, such utterances can work as extended ‘on topic’ topic markers, and when embedded in a therapist produced, self-disclosive story, can work prospectively to configure future therapeutic talk. I show how this features as an important component of the ordinary work practices that clinicians and psychotherapists engage with, and how this might yield additional insights relating to how the work of therapy gets done.

Abstract: This study is an endeavor to connect mass communication research regarding parental mediation of television with interpersonal research concerning topic avoidance in adolescence. A total of forty-four families (mother, father, and adolescent) participated in this study. The results indicated that adolescents reported a negative correlation between topic avoidance and discussing violent television programming with both parents. For the adolescent, as topic avoidance increased with either parent negative mediation about violence decreased. For the topic of sex, a negative relationship between topic avoidance and parental mediation was found for the father only. Furthermore, mothers engaged in more negative mediation of sex and violence than fathers regardless of the adolescents’ gender. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.

3. Banerjee, Heidi. "Measuring Topical Knowledge and Tracking Topical Learning through a Scenario-Based Language Assessment" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAAL Annual Conference, Sheraton Grand Chicago, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1324946_index.html>
Publication Type: Colloquium Paper
Abstract: This study investigated how topical knowledge can be measured, and how topical learning can be tracked using a highly-contextualized scenario-based language assessment. The results provide adequate evidence supporting the use of scenario-based language assessment to measure topical knowledge; furthermore, learners demonstrated significant topical learning at the end of the assessment.

Abstract: Unlike recent studies in the fields of cultural studies or geography the concept of location as a category of social or cultural analysis does not figure prominently within contemporary political theory. In the investigation of the formation of political community geographic or cultural location may provide important insights into the coherence of the boundaries of community. Emphasizing location in the study of political community, however, also prompts a reconsideration of the role of location in classical political thought. My paper will explore Aristotle?s notion of topos and Giambattista Vico?s theory of sensus communis in their treatments of classical rhetoric. I will focus on how the ideas of topos and sensus communis at the foundation of rhetoric contain a particular theory of location. Topoi are the topics, mental locations, or commonplaces, organized by the speaker in the act of rhetoric. Meticulously outlined in Aristotle?s Rhetoric, they serve as the core forms or ?containers? of rhetoric, memorized by a speaker and called upon during a speech or argument. Location as a concept in political theory assists not only in understanding the margins and limits of a community, but also in critically assessing how communities come together. In the philosophical thinking of Aristotle and Vico rhetoric is a form of speech that brings about agreement within a community, even in the face of the contestation of argument. My analysis of topos demonstrates the function of rhetoric in the structuring of community and the quality of political discourse.
